Brew Guides


  • Espresso Coffee | 20g
  • Water | 35ml
  • Temp | 94 DC
  • Brew time | 22 – 28 seconds
  • Grind | Very fine


Place your coffee in your portafilter and tamp with 30lbs of level pressure

Flush your group head for 3 seconds

Place the portafilter in the espresso machine and start extraction immediately (start the timer too)

After about 25 seconds of stop extraction, you should have 35–40mls of espresso

If this takes longer you should alter your grind as it is too fine, alternatively, under 22 seconds if it’s too coarse

Half-fill your cafetiere with boiling water

Discard water, then add coffee

Pour water just off the boil (94 DC) to half-fill the cafetiere

After one minute the coffee will bloom and form a crust, stir 3 times

Add remaining water to fill cafetiere
